a a president to lead. all they have to do is come up with and sit down with harry reid and senate democrats and work out a plan that they can pass. bill: what about that? democratic congressman adam schiff out of california is on the appropriations committee. welcome to "america's newsroom.". what do you think about the speaker? he is putting all this on the president and democrats in the senate. time for them to step up. >> well a couple things. this is the same speaker that said he got 98% of what he wanted in the whole deal that set up the sequester. but we're getting a very mixed message. we're getting a message, the problem we want the other house to go first. or the problem we want the president to propose something. the president has proposed something. i don't think the america people really care about who's idea this originally was or who got 98% of the what. they want the economy to --. bill: sequester in my own state. that will --. bill: let me get that in a a moment. i don't think anybody is arguing that. you call this a man-made crisis. why wait until friday to sit down and tal
a great day. >> thank you. >>> just moments ago, senate majority leader harry reid announced the full senate will vote tomorrow on the nomination of chuck hagel as defense secretary. republicans have been threatening a filibuster. it would be the first ever filibuster against someone nominated for defense secretary. reid is urging republicans to stop playing politics. >> it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense during all the things we have going on in the world, including a war. >> republicans say they want more information about the night of the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans. [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. we've got a lot of empty cans. all right that's a fifth-floor probleok.. not in my house! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! no no no! not today! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! jimmy how happy are folks who save hundreds of dollars switc
on gun control and it happens to be a democrat by the name of harry reid. >> right, a democrat by the name of harry reid, who has opposed some of the very kind of things that president obama is calling for a vote on this time. so, yeah, i think the president should nudge people in his own party to do the things that he wants them to do. we haven't seen him do it on gun control, certainly didn't see him do it on immigration and never did it on senate budge proposal. >> megyn: she calls it an empty gesture untied to political reality. if you watched that moment, he seemed to be implying that there were lawmakers there and one would assume it was lawmakers on the opposite aisle from the president who are going to stop gabby giffords and other victims of gun violence from getting a vote on this legislation. that's not the reality right now in the u.s. congress. >> you're right and look, anytime the president speaks in a venue like this, he's got several audiences and clearly what he's saying is not for the members of congress in front of him. as you point out. harry reid could have
democrats on this issue, harry reid, senator lahey, talking pretty dismissively about the assault weapons ban. gwen: to weapon ban of any kind. >> right. although the magazine restrictions, they still appear to be on the table. the background check measure is astro nomically popular with the government, something like 90% of the people supported it including n.r.a. members. it seems to be a bit of a clever tactic to give some moderate politicians a way to try angulate on this issue so they can say i'm not for the assault weapons ban. that's extreme but i do support this lesser measure even though the irony that something like expanding background checks has the potential to affect a much broader potential policy impact in terms of the number of gun crimes. >> you said a number of n.r.a. members are in favor of the background checks. we haven't heard the n.r.a. say they're in favor of it. are they backing off on the background check issue? >> at least in public, they have not backed off at all. this is a bit of a flip flop for them. back in 1999 the last time this issue was debated, the n.
a budget since the 2nd of april 2009, since harry reid wouldn't put one on the floor you. can't blame the republicans for this. democrats own two pieces of three that make government work. the republicans happen consistently passed budgets, attempted to put things before the president and before the senate. harry reid won't bring it up and the president has time to do is go out and blame republicans for what's wrong this. may happen. it will hurt a lot of people. about it doesn't have to. if the president would step up and be. >> what's up on the show tomorrow? we're going to talk about cyberhacking and it's affecting a lot of people. george bush, he gate code was hacked into. this is a serious issue for america. we have a lot more, but, by the way, sissy houston, whitney's mother will be on as well. >> from benghazi to the border, a new survey showing 40% of americans consider illegal immigration a major cause of unemployment. this is the white house and a group of senators push to legalize as many as 11 million illegal immigrants. bad timing? byron says, out of touch. >> there's a n
such a liability for the democrats that harry reid and other democrats throw him overboard, then chris cities -- chris cities gets to name replacement. the other part of this is as you point out that if the fbi can go up the food chain because the part that they are looking at is influence pedaling, allegations of corruption that perhaps senator menendez his official office to work with his donor to pass out some business favors, perhaps, to this dozier. these are the allegations, this is what is out there. if they cannot just get to menendez but perhaps to a broader net of even bigger fish like the clintons who have been known to work with this donor, then i think the democrats have a wider scandal on their hands. >> bill: i think there is scandal here. >> guilt by association. >> bill: at this point, correct, there is no hard evans to show anything. as dr. crowley pointed out. >> that's what i have to call her. >> bill: you don't get a warrant or don't have fbi resources on a fishing expedition. >> innocent until proven guilty. wouldn't talk to the fbi and men then des who won by 19 points.
of questions about whether democratic legislators up to and including harry reid would support what the president wants to do when t comes to gun control. >> that is a good question, jon. in the political calculus that is pretty simple. you have democrats that could be embarrassed if forced take a vote on guns. like assault weapons ban, et cetera. those are in conservative states or in the house in conservative districts may have been carried by mitt romney and they're holding on by a thread. we're talking about whether or not senate majority leader harry reid is willing to put those democrats at risk and also then put at risk control of the senate because republicans have fewer people who were running, who will be running in 14 and fewer people who are at risk. though again, the dynamic is very difficult for the democrats and here's a vote that would expose them to great political costs. jon: let's take, let's take another listen at one of the things the president said last night. >> and i know you want these job-creating projects in your district. i've seen all those ribbon cuttin
to senate democratic leader harry reid who did not get a call from the president today and bush and to pass one of two house republican plans to stop the sequestered. cantor declaring house republicans have acted, and it is time for the president and senate democrats to join us. it is time to get off of the campaign trail and get to work, show us with spending reductions you prefer and let's find some common ground. in a tit-for-tat fight, carney brought out shots on the president's own plans to cut spending and tried to turn the blame game back on publicans. >> there will be jobs and if the sequester takes place. the president will, as he continues to do, call on republicans in congress to agree to avoid the sequestered because it is a wholly unnecessary will run the economy if it were to take place. >> except there were others in the president's party like former democratic national committee chairman howard dean suggesting the president should let the sequester happen to slice the pentagon's budget. telling the huffington post, i am in favor of the sequestered. it is tough on things
republicans passed so many things that just never see the light of day. and harry reid's senate. but the way things used to work, you used to pass things in the house, and then the senate would pass things. and then when harold and i at least were in washington in the '90s, then you go to conference committee, and they battle it out. that doesn't happen if harry reid doesn't pass things in the senate. he is the president's pocket veto. >> the step you're missing in that is -- and kevin mccarthy's interview proves that denial is not simply a river in egypt -- there's no conference committee. >> can i -- hold on. hold on. >> that's a good one. that was so fancy. >> is not just a river in egypt. >> that's what he does now. >> that's something brad pitt would say in one of those chanel ads. >> let's call brad. >> standing against the wall wearing nothing. >> he's wearing the sweater. >> go like this. >> you can't get away with saying things like that on this show. >> i want to hear his vision. >> why? more "morning joe." >> i know you're way above the cliche. i'm sorry. >> stupid cliche. >> what

of defense leon panetta says he will stay on until hagel is confirmed. senate majority leader harry reid who likes panetta called him as lame as a duck can be, shep? >> shepard: republicans say they are not trying to kill this nomination so what are they trying to do? >> that's right. republicans say that the democrats didn't seem to mind a 60 vote requirement when president bush was in office o. and they were his nominees. leading republicans say bottom line is, they aren't playing games here. there are solid public policies between members of this side of the aisle and the nominee. this is not about politics. this is not about personalities questions about should iran be able to get a nuclear weapon. >> unless there is some huge nomination in the coming days. they expect chuck hagel will get confirmed in about 10 days. shep? >> shepard: mike emanuel on the hill tonight. jerusalem is i shore about to get a boost from beautiful women. cutting a deal to return to atlantic city after years in vegas. it's a huge boost for jersey's tourism industry. coming months after that super storm sandy mad
a budget by the first monday of february. senator harry reid said the gun legislation in the senate will include magazine size and background checks, but it would not seek a ban on military-style assault weapons. an amendment could be included to cover that. the president heads to minneapolis to discuss gun control. and the cost of the 2012 elections are in. the final price tag is estimated at $7 billion. according to the consumer confidence index, half the respondents said that the financial crisis went under the labour retirement plan. we are interested in hearing from you if the financial crisis delay your retirement. want to give us a call, the numbers are on your screen. for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. if you want to reach out to us on social media, you can send us a tweet at twitter.com/c-spanwj. around 40 people so far responding on facebook. and you can send us an e-mail to journal@c-span.org. the survey that was mentioned talks a little bit about respondents' and what they were asked about as far as their retiremen
't attack the president. they attacked nancy pelosi and harry reid. they avoided talking about -- >> but here, they have to go one on one with the president because he's the one that they're fighting with. it is not really harry reid and nancy pelosi leading the charge. >> bill: the other thing they say, we can absorb this. it won't be so bad. $1.2 trillion, that's over ten years. yet the pentagon comes out yesterday with a -- not with a study, they reported that they've already told 800,000 civilian employees you're going to face a furlough if this kicks in. that means they take one day a week off. that's a 20% cut in their pay. again, i'm trying to get in the mindset of republicans who think it is a good idea to let this happen. >> well, even unless -- if you look at the defense spending that we would go back, this would roughly be what the defense department was spending in 2006-2007 when they're waging two wars. maybe the defense department could cut back. the pentagon has never been able to do a full audit. it is risky because the white house put out a memo. i'm sure you s

in benghazi, libya. >> the senate majority leader harry reid has set the stage for a full senate vote on hagfel. >> read filed a motion wednesday to limit debate and force a vote, which is expected tomorrow. >> democrats held a 55-45 edge in the senate, but they need the support of five republicans to clear the way for the up or down vote. >> coming up on the kron 4 morning news watching bay area weather and traffic. a quick check of your forecast and morning commute coming up in two minutes. plus, new numbers out this morning revealed how many american women are using the morning after pill. the will talk about the new federal report. >> and it will cost you more to go to the hockey game now. how end a celtic is compared be a developing story a shooting at an elementary school in san leandro. let us turn to our solo reporter jackie sissel let's just arrived of the scene. >> good morning mark i am on the 15,000 barque of marcell1500 block of marcella and san leandro. >> we are told that at some point last night a shooting occurred on the campus of the hillside elementary school. inves
tomorrow. now, harry reid filed a motion to limit debate and force a vote. even though hagel is a former republican senator, it's his fellow republicans who have been strongly opposing his nomination. now, democrats hold 55 seats in the senate. but they need five republican votes to move ahead with hagel's confirmation. >>> this morning, former secretary of state, hillary clinton is being honored at the pentagon. we're watching the pentagon this morning. defense secretary leon panetta will be hosting the event on his last day in office. hillary clinton is being honored for her four years as secretary of state during which she traveled more than 1 million miles and visited 1 -- 112 countries. >>> in just hours, the national rifle association will directly respond to president obama's state of the union address. the nra rejects the president's gun control proposal. as kyla campbell reports from our washington, d.c. newsroom, this is all happening as the california congresswoman joins other moms against gun violence today. >> reporter: jackie speier is joining with group moms rising which h
speaker boehner, senate democratic leader harry reid, and nancy pelosi, the house democratic leader, will attend the meeting on friday at the white house. on c-span we have been talking to capitol hill reporters about the potential impact of the sequester. here's a look at how it might be affecting the education department. >> joining us now from domination week is reporter allison klein, she's on the phone to talk about what she's education cuts could mean. good morning. we heard the education secretary call them dumb cuts. what the republicans calling the potential cuts to education? >> that's funny. they have been pretty quiet about that. i think it's a losing issue to come out and say we really want to make sure we cut programs like title 1, disadvantaged students, head start programs like that. so they have been fairly quiet when it comes to the education cuts and sequestration. >> let's look at some of the specifics, the white house is warning about a 8.2% across-the-board for most education programs. what else are we seeing? >> actually with the s.s.i. .3% cut because of some
has a proposal. i don't think it's sound, but let's vote on it. to harry reid, the house, we have done nothing in the senate. it is one thing to be the world's most deliberate body. it is another thing to be the most absent. we are not doing anything in the senate, so harry reid, please come up with one of your own proposals, put it on the floor, let's start voting. if you don't like what we are doing, come up with your own plan. now, as john said, republicans own this proposal on the sequestration idea. it was the president's idea, according to bob woodward broke, that we would agree to it. we got in this mess together, and we are going to have to get out the way and do it together. you are the commander in chief. do you really want a deal to destroy the military at the time we need it the most? you want to do that with asia? what about the low number of ships we have? if you exempt personnel, have you modernize the f16 and f18. our enemies would love this to happen. i am sure that iran is very supportive of sequestration. i am sure that al qaeda training camps all over the world woul
have barack obama who is a democrat, president of the united states. then we have harry reid who is the majority leader. so the democrats are in control of both. now, if you think back at what happened back in -- during the last bush administration, we had exactly the reverse. george bush was president of the united states and the democrats were a minority. same situation. so what happened? first of all, we had bolton come up, john bolton. same thing, subjected to a 60-vote margin. we had steve -- dirk kempthorne. all remember dirk kempthorne. there are a lot of people who did not approve of him. he was appointed by bush, a republican, and then when he came over here, the democrats didn't like him, they subjected him to a 60-vote margin. that wasn't a filibuster. this isn't a filibuster today. people are trying to say that and blame me as being the bad guy that's causing a filibuster. it's not the case at all. any more than it was the case back in the 2005-2006 and other times when we had a nominee that was put forth by president bush. it was objected to by the democrats. now, di
. the reason why it was defeated because the majority leader harry reid switched his vote to no so he could bring the vote back up again after the senate comes back from recease. a lot of republican senators were saying that they did not want this choice filibustered. even if they wanted to vote no on his nomination he at least deserves an up down vote in order to be approved. the republicans decided to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on issues like the attack in benghazi so they passed hagel when they come back. the way you're looking at it, to me, it is efforts to delaying the inevitable. chuck hagel will be confirmed as the secretary of defense. he just has to wait a couple of days. you're going to confirm himny way and it is just another delay in what the senate is trying to to do. host: harry reid set a new vote in 11 days. what do republicans want to see in the meantime? guest: well, they say they would like answers, again, from the white house, more details about what the president did and did not do in the terrorist attack in libya. the white
? >> harry reid won't get a paycheck if he doesn't pass a budget. we finally got his attention. >> i don't think there's any tag days for him getting a paycheck but thank you. >> about the g-7 -- >> my word, absolutely. currency wars front and center, particularly london, the world's major foreign exchange center. notice the stock markets are higher almost across the board. one of the major reasons the banks are rallying today, at the helm, barclays. unveiled a structureture to cut costs and rebalance the bank away from investment banking and the way consumer units grow organically much faster and return to internal equity of about 15%. the stock is up 18%. it continues to gain and dragging other banks in the uk and elsewhere and spain with it, and what the ceo had to say. >> we have to manage our capital very effectively and reduce our cost space and reduce the ratio of compensation to our net income. that's what we're talking about today. >> for the record, the average bonus investment banking at barclays is down 17% at $84,000. the big debate in europe remains on currencies, brussels,
to vote for it. harry reid has not had the senate majority pass a budget in the last four years. the senate, the last time the senate passed a budget was actually before the ipad had been invented. so you talk about how far ago that's been. families have to balance their budgets. most states like my home state of wyoming, we balance our budget every year. i believe we need a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. the president continues to oppose those sorts of things. jon: well, the president has said he doesn't think the federal government has a spending problem. 83% of americans disagree with him according to our latest fox news poll. they say they think government does spend too much money. why the disconnect? >> well, and nancy pelosi said the same thing this weekend on one of the talk shows. americans know the problem in this country is that we spend too much, not that we're taxed too little. and that's where the republicans and i are specifically focusing our attention on trying to get the spending under control which is what american families have been doing, wha

'm renominating them to go through the formal senate process that they never had the first time because harry reid never got them a committee hearing. >> it's starting to seem just a bit like the president doesn't have much regard for that co-equal branch of government stuff or checks and balances. he has a very specific agenda at work here, and that is to move straight ahead with the nominations of sharon block, robert griffin. there's only one, the chairman, mark, mark gaston pierce who is lawfully confirmed by the united states senate, it's-- >> supposed to be five on there. right now three, only one is whom is there legitimately. >> after the d.c. court of appeals rule it's unconstitutional, which in the views of many makes all of tfofe decisions they've made over 200, not valid and have to be reconsidered at some point by a lawfully-- >> if the supreme court reverses the lower court they're back in business. right now the only decision standing and they haven't officially appealed it, nlrb, is the one saying you do not belong on that board and you never had the authority to appoint them, pres
it with monica crowley radio talk show host and fox news contributor. harry reid said just when you thought things continue get worscouldn't get worse, it gets worse. >> senator reid is sanctimonious on this point blaming the republicans and getting all up in arms about the fact that the republicans are holding off on this nomination when the democrats have performed similar maneuvers to try to block republican nominees including george h.w. bush's choice for defense secretary john tower. and nominee john bolton. jon: this is the kind of thing that has happened before. >> on both side, correct. nothing new here. jon: why are the administration, and democrats in the senate making it out as though the sky is falling here? >> they are trying to make a political argument that the republicans are just doing this for politics but nothing could be further from the truth. chuck hagel is a very problematic nominee. he had one of the most disastrous confirmation hearing performances in recent history. we are still getting information that he should have disclosed at the outset when he was first nomin
of assignments for cheadle for chuck hagel's nomination to a vote this week, do you think harry reid made a mistake enough for sydney will reform the filibuster? >> back to questions about the space i'm in. after 36 years i love my job and integrated server. read the press accounts and get the magazines, but i'm not there and they've got a tough job. by the way, i am optimistic. i am optimistic about the congress. republicans and democrats in my view are going to once again make that institution is in port, vibrant and vital as it has been historically, so i'm sort of a loud, but i believe very strongly. i put on a list of people have great confidence and hope to make a difference in all of this. i happen to be an advocate at the simple question is the filibuster rule. that's what the founders intended. if you create nothing more than a year and i can, a, in your image, what is the point of having two chambers? there's a reason why the senate is a counterbalance, with a popular elected official majority rules of the senate was the place for the minority rules in a sense, the proposal to f
proposed it to harry reid and off it went. in the end all the fingerprints of washington are on this deal in the end. you're saying in fact our navy is too pau small, you want a bigger one, buy bigger, cheaper, faster ships. this is a wake up call for the defense department. how do they learn from this. ralph? >> well, i hope they feel some real pain. i don't want our troops to feel pain. i don't want any honest federal worker to be furniture load. but my god, bill, the waste in the defense budget is enormous, and there is no lemon law when contractors sell us junk. generals and admirals don't say boo about weapons that don't work because they get out and go to work for the defense industry for lucrative salaries, and congress, again, they'll vote to preserve 20 bad jobs in their home district even if it cost us 20 troops. you're absolutely right, everybody's fingerprint is on it and my line to the republican is if sequestration is so bad, why do you guys vote for it? why do you have the guts to stand up back then? i say a playing on bot plague on both their houses stphao. bill: the milit
